Today, Louis Fisher J.D. ’16, student attorney in the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau (HLAB), presented an oral argument in the case of Meikle v. Nurse. The focus of the case is whether a landlord’s violation of the security deposit law provides a defense to a tenant in a summary process action for eviction of the tenant.
“Charlie Reese J.D. ’16 from the Legal Services Center’s Housing Law Clinic filed an amicus brief in the case, which was a tremendous help, on behalf of City Life/Vida Urbana,” Louis said.
Louis is working on the case under the supervision of HLAB’s Senior Clinical Instructor Patricia Whiting. Deena Greenberg J.D. ’15 also worked on the case.
